Lyme Disease and Night Sweats?!
Lyme disease and night sweats is a topic that surges as warmer weather arrives. According to the CDC, “Lyme disease causes a rash, often in a bull’s-eye pattern, and flu-like symptoms. Joint pain and weakness in the limbs also can occur. Most people with Lyme disease recover completely with appropriate antibiotic treatment. For those who develop syndromes after their infection is treated, pain medications may provide symptomatic relief.”
Lyme disease is caused by a bite from an infected deer tick and has been increasing in occurrences annually. Reports of infection rates are 25 times greater now than they were in 1982 and more than 300,000 people are diagnosed annually. Initial symptoms of Lyme disease are similar to the flu, with night sweat, fevers and chills.
